I finished reading Bernard Goldberg's book 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America and I have summarized the contents here.

So out of curiosity - what is your take on the book?

Your synopsis was interesting, but I didn't find much personal opinion on the contents the author included (although I might have not been reading that well between the lines as I was just scanning over it).

I was thankful for Goldberg's list. Maybe it's because I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area, or that my friends are liberals, or that I read liberal websites (plastic.com, slate.com), but for some reason I don't always hear the other side.

Not that Goldberg's counts as the other side, at least it reminds me that there are tons of idiot liberals.

However, it didn't move me any bit from being a liberal. In some ways, it made me more liberal, because it presented the pettiness of his positions.

Really, the book is an old guy cussing at his TV. Damn kids and their rap music. Damn beautiful celebrities and their lack of patriotism.

Like Matthew Lesko, number 100. Such a random inclusion. You have to be a nighthawk in front of the TV to have found that guy.

basically anyone who isn't a republican or who doesn't think like this idiot is screwing up america...honestly i agree with quite a few of this idiot's observation--including my favorite being that sheila jackson lee is insane for wanting hurricanes to have african american names (what the hell is an african american name Sheniquia?)however she's as intitled to be a fool as the fool who wrote this book. and i am an african american named Alice
